I heard a piece on NPR a few months ago: experts anticipate a rise in value over the short term, but then probable collapse as people realize they have no intrinsic value.

Watcha gunna do when the internet goes down in a real SHTF situation? Even gold may not have a value then. Better to be invested in barterable ( ? is that a word) skills, tools, supplies & materials.
